SOBEWFF 2024: Two-in-One Chef Lunch Hosted by Tyson Cole and Tim Cushman at Uchi Miami

Sponsored By

February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Get ready for an extraordinary South Beach Wine & Food Festival dining experience that transcends tradition and takes Japanese cuisine to a whole new level! Join us at Uchi Miami as we bring together two culinary maestros, Tyson Cole and Tim Cushman, to craft a chic and unique lunch that will leave your taste buds spellbound.

Prepare to be wowed by the culinary artistry of award-winning chefs Tyson Cole and Tim Cushman. Those who can’t snag a reservation at either of the chefs’ popular restaurants get the chance for a two-in-one experience. Chef Cole is the founder and executive chef of multiple highly acclaimed Uchi restaurants, including in Miami, where this lunch will take place. Chef Cole has racked up coveted accolades from the James Beard Foundation, Food & Wine and more, cementing him as one of the most distinguished chefs on the scene. Chef Cushman helms the kitchen of Boston’s rock-and-roll Japanese tavern Hojoko. He is also the creative mind behind Cushman Concepts, a hospitality group known for Boston’s innovative Japanese restaurant O Ya.

Tradition meets innovation at this reception and lunch combination. Taste 72-Hour Gyutoro Gunkan with caper relish, Fresno and micro-cilantro, and Oyster with ponzu-marinated watermelon pearls to name a few. Lunch further explores a trio of sashimi from Chef Cushman: Suzuki with spicy cucumber vinaigrette, Bluefin Toro with “lots of green onion,” and binchotan-seared Sawara with grapefruit ponzu and Black River Osetra caviar. From Chef Cole, indulge in Keru Wagyu, an Australian wagyu strip flavored with kale chimichurri and miso garlic, and the decadent Pineapple Okashi for a sweet conclusion.

Wine pairings will be available.

Tickets are $175 per person. Dress code: Smart casual. 21+

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
